    FGDaze has arrived!

    Edit FGDaze! 4 Info found here: https://www.fantasygrounds.com/forum...ncement-thread

    I know you guys need more gaming and we love to deliver!

    FGCon is the flagship Online Role Playing Convention for Fantasy Grounds and the second biggest online convention running. But we can only run FGCon twice a year and we miss you all in between! So today we are launching FGDaze!

    FGDaze is a one day event that will run between FG Con. That means we are adding more events to your Gaming Calendars! We are also working with the team from The Society Of Extraordinary Gamers as they bring the Gamer Geekend events online too!

    [B]FGDaze! has previously run on Saturday June 27th and Saturday August 15th! FGDaze! 3 will run on Saturday December 5th 2015

    FGDaze will be organised and run entirely on the Forums and Calendar here. Game list for December 5th: http://www.fantasygrounds.com/forums...ncement-thread!

    How do I participate?

    GMs please post your games in the Game Calendar using the below as an example and keep these points in mind:
    • All games start on Saturday (whereever you are is ok!)
    • Our primary Aim is to provide more opportunity to new players to get a game and meet other gamers
    • Advertise your Game in the FGDaze1 Games thread initially and then advertise it far and wide
    • Your Campaign name must begin with [FGDaze]
    • Post your game in the Game Calendar and set and confirm the game time - dont leave it to a vote
    • Create a thread specific to your game in the FGDaze forum and link it in your announcement in the main FGDaze1 thread. This thread will be used for discussions, Q&A etc. specific to your game.
    • In your game thread and game calendar entry indicate how long you anticipate the session will last.
    • Games will use Text Chat or the Community TeamSpeak Server
    • For those GMs comfortable with teaching new players - please encourage new players in your Calendar Post

    GMs please note that Full License GMs will get bumped to Ultimate License GMs on FGDaze Weekends - thanks Smiteworks!

    Players
    • Check the Game Thread often, subscribe to the thread to get regular updates.
    • Make sure your TimeZone is set in your profile
    • Sign up to a game or two
    • Invite your friends

All games are newbie friendly - new to the system and new to +Fantasy Grounds.

    You need a demo license (or better) of Fantasy Grounds , TeamSpeak and a Headset and Mic. Games are filling fast - dont miss out.

    [FGDAZE] - Eye of Kilquato - Savage Worlds - Pulp (3 spots)

An adventure for 1st-4th level characters.

    When Riikan Dack, a wealthy collector of rare art objects, hired you to recover a weapon stolen from his vault, he offered your group 10,000 gp—a reward sizable enough to dissuade you from asking too many questions. He showed you the boastful note left by the thief—supposedly an ancient wizard named Keraptis—and told you that his sources had pinpointed your destination (the “feathered mound” named in the note) as a volcanic peak called White Plume Mountain.

    And the first session is kicking off now! Top Secret by Ted Wallerstedt. An old school favourite - Top Secret was written way back when the Cold War was real, the Berlin Wall still divided a city and a country and cloak and dagger stuff was still the way countries gathered their intel on each other.

    [FGDAZE] Savage Top Secret [SXG] (1 spot available)
    Synopsis: Missile plans your organization wants are rumored to be in a relatively unguarded warehouse safe. Your team is tasked to get them ASAP. This is a one shot for FGDaze. It is a Savage Worlds conversion of an old school Top Secret adventure. Pregens will be provided.

    There are still plenty of sessions available at all times of the day and night over the next 36 hours!

    I would like to thank all GMs for running games for this event. The amount and quality of games ran certainly exceeded our expectations. A thank you to players for coming in such great numbers is also in order. Our goal was to provide more opportunities to newcomers to try out Fantasy Grounds. I hope you had a good time and got to try something new. Let us know how we can make this event even better.

    Cheers!

    Thanks for organising fg daze guys, thanks to the great community here I was able to play with some great GM's and players alike. Certainly a great way to get newcomers like myself familiar with FG and all it can do as well as meeting more members.

    Bravo
